October 2020





Dear International Students,

The start of the new academic year is here – welcome back! We would also like to warmly welcome all new first-year students at Charles University (CU). Our newsletters will accompany you throughout the whole academic year. We will keep you updated on services that we offer to Charles University students and send you important news as well as invitations to upcoming events. As a part of the Rectorate, CU Point is here to guide you through your studies and provide you with useful information on Charles University services and activities. We will do our best to help you with your studies, personal problems as well as practical issues. All of our services and events are free of charge.

Also, follow regularly the news and all up-to-date information on the Covid-19 situation on the university website as well as faculty websites.

Although the beginning of this academic year is different in many ways, we wish you good luck with your studies and a great fall!
